American School is pleased to be an exhibitor at the 70th annual ASCD Annual Conference and Exhibit Show. The event will be held March 21-23 at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston. Curriculum experts attending the convention are invited to visit American School in booth 842 on March 21 from 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m., March 22 from 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m., and March 23 from 8:30 a.m.-1 p.m. to learn more about American School and the accredited high school courses it provides to students and schools.
American School has been a leader in distance education since 1897 and has helped more than three million students across the country and around the world earn their accredited high school diplomas. Students wishing to earn American School’s diploma choose either General High School Program or College Preparatory Program, both of which contain 18 units of credit. A full, four-year paper-based diploma program costs $2100 and includes all study materials, and access to the password-protected Online Student Center, where students and parents can view grades, access help sheets and homework web sites, and contact American School instructors and staff members. A full, four-year online diploma program costs $3600 and includes the same benefits as described above.
American School also offers individual paper-based and online courses to students with an existing homeschool curriculum and to students who attend brick and mortar high schools. The latter group takes individual courses through the Independent Study Program, which thousands of schools use each year to help their students graduate on time. Individual courses, including ten different world language courses offered through a partnership with Rosetta Stone, typically cost between $150 and $300, and students who take individual courses receive the same Online Student Center benefits as those students who are working toward their American School diploma.
American School is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools/Commissions on Elementary and Secondary Schools (MSA-CESS), Ai (Accreditation International) and NCPSA (the National Council for Private School Accreditation) and is recognized by the State of Illinois as a non-public high school.
